1 Year Post Surgery, Our 2016 Clubfoot Journey Update


Today (February 26th, 2016) marks one year since my son Mason had his most recent clubfoot operation. (You can read about what it consisted of in the pre-operation blog here , post-operation blog here and the follow up blog here.)  I realized that the last I had talked about Mason’s clubfoot was when he had his walking cast on, and I we were back into…

A New Round of Firsts (Clubfoot Journey)


So since I last talked about it, my son is now into the walking cast stage of his clubfoot surgery. It has been much, much, much easier on both Mason and Les and myself, since he got the walking cast on last Wednesday. He didn’t enjoy the removal and re-wrapping of his leg very much, but once he stretched out…

I’ve Been Given Enough Now, Thanks (Clubfoot Journey)


Today hasn’t been the greatest day. Heck, this past week hasn’t necessarily been the greatest week. Last Thursday (February 26th) Mason had his foot surgery at CHEO. The day came and I still wasn’t ready for it. Although they ended up needing to do a little more cutting and lengthening while they were doing what was scheduled, the surgery went well…

Our Clubfoot Journey Continues…


It’s been a while since I’ve written any updates on our son Mason’s clubfoot journey, almost 2 years in fact. To catch people up, when Mase was 10 days old he began his treatments with a series of casts, minor surgery and then a shoes on a brace treatment. You can read all about our journey in the series of…

Our Clubfoot Journey: At the 2 Year Mark


My son Mason just turned 2, and he is as busy as ever! To look at our little man (and how crazy he is running around) it is hard to tell that he was born with clubbed right foot. (You can read all my posts about our clubfoot journey so far, beginning here.) Since the initial few months of his treatment,…

Our Clubfoot Journey: Q&A


Recently I shared the story of what it has been like dealing with my 17 month old son having been born with a club foot in a three part post series. I have received a few questions via Twitter, our Facebook Page and by email! Thank you so much for reaching out, my whole point in writing these posts was to give some much needed, updated information…

Our Clubfoot Journey – Part 3


So we were done what we originally thought would be the hard part of the 3 year process in correcting our son’s club foot, the 8 week casting process. We thought we were smooth sailing, cause all in all, the casts were pretty easy once we got used to it. Our sons foot was now cast free, and he was fitted with shoes attached to a stationary bar, he…

Our Clubfoot Journey – Part 2


When I first got a look at my new baby sons foot, it really was not as bad as the horrors that I had been playing out in my head. His little foot looked just that, like a baby foot. Only thing it was turned inwards from the ankle. It was as though he was turning his foot inwards, only it didn’t move from that position. We really didn’t…

Our Clubfoot Journey – Part 1


Going for an ultrasound when I was pregnant was always nerve wrecking. Was everything ok? Was the baby growing as he/she should? Am I doing what I should? The questions were always there. We had already been for an ultrasound at 12 weeks. We heard the heartbeat, and saw our baby. All was well. So we were very excited to go for the ultrasound at 21 weeks, as we were going to…

Be a CHEO Hero This Weekend!


Last year my kids and I had the privilege of being included in a short video with the Prime Minister’s Wife, Mrs. Laureen Harper, for a great campaign with CHEO (Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario) for their upcoming telethon! I always say YES to anything that is involved with CHEO, since as you may (or maybe not!) know, but we have…
